Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201410-1
Date : 2014-10-01
CVE-ID : CVE-2014-3634
Package : rsyslog
Type : Denial of service
Remote : Yes
Link : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CVE-2014
The package rsyslog before version 8.4.1-1 is
vulnerable to a remote denial of service.
Upgrade to 8.4.1-1.
# pacman -Syu "rsyslog>=8.4.1-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 8.4.1.
It is possible to prevent unauthorized remote hosts from sending syslog
messages to vulnerable hosts, for example by using a firewall.
Sending a syslog message containing an invalid PRI value to a
vulnerable rsyslog server accepting remote message will trigger a denial
of service by crashing the rsyslog process.
A remote attacker authorized to send syslog messages can cause the
syslog server to segfault, causing a denial of service.
According to the rsyslog project leader, under certain preconditions it
may possibly lead to remote code execution . The default
configuration is safe from these preconditions.
